THE first frost brought a record result of £678, for St Breward Church Christmas Fair — topping last year which was a record in itself. 

From the proceeds, £101 goes to The Friends of St Breward Church from the ‘Water into Wine’ stall and the sale of fabulous knitted creations. There was a unique wreath to be won, made in wool, with a myriad of knitted creations adorning it.

The Christmas stall was loaded and the nearly new stall and most of it actually was new. The bric a brac stall was partly themed around Christmas, with a table of puzzles and books for adults and children too.

The Christmas raffle was tremendously popular and had some perfect gifts. In addition, there was a dinner raffle and guess the weight of a beautiful Christmas cake.   

The cake stall had seasonal produce including a large amount of Christmas themed items from cakes to home made mincemeat.

The servers on the refreshment stall were kept busy throughout and had a selection of  items and mince pies on offer.   The donations also flowed in for a warming glass of hot toddy. 

Caroline Hooper, St Breward PCC treasurer, said: “A big thank you to everyone involved whether helping, attending or donating. It was uplifting to see so many people obviously enjoying themselves.”
